Mourn Me Not For I Live On             Part I of IV

Today I am showing a piece called “Mourn Me Not For I Live On.”  This was originally written on commission to commemorate the life of a well-loved and very accomplished father, grandfather and husband.  He and his wife traveled quite a bit, and this poem commemorated that aspect of his life, and their life together.  It was etched on a wooden plaque and placed next to the photos at his memorial service.  People were very touched, I am told.  This has n0w been etched on picture matting with room for a photo of the person being honored.  I think it works for almost anyone.  I hope you like it.

Mourn Me Not For I Live On  (Part I)

Mourn me not for I live on;
there are places still to go.
I’ve been blessed so many ways
and ways I don’t yet know.
Life has changed but is not gone—
mourn me not for I live on.
I’ve traveled many highways—
there are many roads to roam.
But on every road I traveled,
I mapped my way back home.
I took those roads to wondrous sites,
to their wondrous ends.
Still I loved to come back home
to family and friends.
